It is necessary to put a drop of imagination, a little patienceand get an original exclusive Christmas tree toy. And if you are not too lazy, tie a lot of balls in a single style, and decorate the tree with them, the enthusiasm of others is assured, as is the festive mood! Materials:
- threads ("Lacy") - 30 grams each,
- hook 1 mm,
- detachable transparent ball D = 12 cm,
- pearls - 6 pcs.
Preparation method: The lacy pattern looks particularly advantageous on a transparent ball, but it will fit any one-colored paint. It will be necessary to make two parts. They will be so plastic that they will easily take the form of a hemisphere. We begin with the creation of a ring of five air loops. 1st row. We knit 11 stitches with a crochet. The second row is made from the same number of columns with a crochet, but we divide them by two air loops. Pay attention to the fact that at the beginning of the series, you need to tie 3 air loops for lifting. 3rd row. And again, the 4 th air loops are required for lifting. In this series, the product will take the form of a six-pointed star by alternating a column and a column with two crochets, connected by three air loops. 4th row. * 5 air loops, then - a pole to the top of the six-pointed star. After that - 2 air loops, 3 pillars and again 2 air loops *. Until the end of the series, repeat the motif marked "*". So you get a six-pointed star. When finished, tie another 2 bars around the ring for the convenience of switching to another row. 5th row. At each top of the star we need to untie a petal, which consists of 5 lobules. We will receive the lobules from a pair of posts with two rounds tied together. The first petal will be slightly different, since the first lobe of it is formed by a chain (the one for lifting) and one column with two crochets, and the rest - from two posts with two crochets, tied together. Visually, the petals can not be distinguished. Let's proceed to the fifth row. 3 loops for lifting and a column with two crochet binds together. This is the first lobule. Next, four times, tie the motif in "*". * 2 air loops, 2 pillars with two crochet, tied together *. The first petal is ready. Go to the second petal with two air loops. All the other petals on the tops of the hexagonal star are knitted, as described in the motif in "*", but the lobules in the petals knit is not five, but six. Behind the last petal - two air loops and one connecting column. In the 6th row - all the same slices, but between them already5 air loops each. Note that the petals do not join together in this row with air loops (see photo and diagram). To go to the next row, we need 3 bars. 7th row. Change the thread. The seventh and eighth rows are extremely simple - it's just a grid, consisting of chains of seven loops in each, ending in a column. Go to the next row using 5 bars. 8th row. For the last chain in the mesh, bind only 4 air loops and one column with two tops. Due to this, the hook will be in the middle part of the chain. The 9th row is more complicated than the previous two. Start with three air loops. Then tie one bar with two crochets, stepping into the third loop of the chain in the eighth row (see diagram). Then - 3 air loops for lifting and a connecting chain of 6 loops. Now be careful, you will have to perform an unusual combination. * Screw 3 turns (crochet) onto the hook, but for the time being only tie two loops, stepping into the second loop of the chain in the 8th row. In fact, there was a column with two crochets, but there were still two loops left on the hook. Screw two more turns onto the hook, again fasten the two loops, stepping already into the sixth loop of the chain in the 8th row. It turned out one more column with two crochets, and on the hook still remained unbroken two loops. Take them in turns. You got something like the Eiffel Tower, which has two pillars with one spire. That's all the complexity. In the end - 6 air loops *. The combination between "*" needs to be repeated 24 times. Now - fitting, let's see if our product will fit the ball well? Excellent! 10th row. Repeat the 9th row with red thread. Half of the ball is ready, we need another suchsame. When both parts of the lace cover are ready, put them on the ball, grab the sewing thread imperceptibly and sew the pearls. Beautiful Christmas tree decoration! In conclusion, I result the scheme. Experienced craftsmen can only look at it to understand everything without further ado. According to the scheme, there are 9 rows. In the 9th and 10th - the connecting chains to 6 loops are reduced.
